I've been leaving traditional roles behind for a long time. Back during my school years living at home, my favorite mantra was: I know you'd let me do it if I were a boy … or … If a boy can do it, so can I.

Gender just doesn't count with me. A prime example When both spouses were being deployed and someone had to make a sacrifice and remain at home to take care of their kids, I asked who had the more successful career and who was best able to handle the new assignment.
